Melissa Kasper set a new school career mark for assists as she had three in the Gorloks 3-0 home win Saturday over MacMurray. Kasper has now recorded 50 assists in her Webster career.

Senior Melissa Kasper surpassed the career assist record of 47 set by Christy Capkovic during her career from 2007-10. Kasper recorded three assists in the game setting the new record at 50. Kasper also currently holds the season-high record at 19 assists.

Saturday’s win extends Webster’s overall record to 11-4-1. Although they won, the game wasn’t played in the best weather conditions.

“It was pouring rain the entire game and freezing cold. We won though, and that’s all that really matters.” sophomore Chloe Dedic said.

The Gorloks had 24 shots on Saturday. Only eight of those 24 shots were shot on goal. Webster held MacMurray to only one shot.

The first goal was not scored until the second half. It was scored off a header by Olivia Osterhage. The assist came off of a corner kick by Kasper.

The second Gorlok goal came from sophomore Jordan Lande. She is the second-highest individual offense leader in the conference. The current record is 17 goals while Lande is at 16 goals on the season. She also falls behind Kasper in points. Kasper leads the SLIAC with 36 points and Lande is in third with 33 points.

The third Webster goal was scored in the 73rd minute by Sophia Lambiase about four yards out from the goal line. This marks Sophia’s second goal on the season.

The Gorloks will travel to Principia College on Tuesday, October 29 to try and extend their win streak to three games.
